Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Joe Ralls - Cardiff City mid­fielder

Best mate at the club? Joe Ma­son. We’ve been here for four or five years to­gether, and he’s my roomie, too. We watch a lot of things on the lap­top while we’re away and go out for food to­gether dur­ing the week. Last to buy din­ner? Stu­art O’Keefe. He lost a bet at the end of last sea­son and he had to take all the boys out for din­ner, but he’s never done it. The boys have been on his case all sea­son but we still haven’t gone out. FIFA King? Peter Whit­ting­ham is a bit of a com­puter geek. He plays a lot at home and he loves it. We don’t have any con­soles at the train­ing ground, so I don’t think many peo­ple play. Maybe we should get an Xbox or some­thing for the train­ing ground. Worst dressed? Bruno Manga has some train­ers that light up as he walks. They’re the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life. He wears them all the time, de­spite all the stick he gets from the lads, so fair play to him. Dress­ing room DJ? Craig Noone’s iPod is al­ways on at train­ing. Justin Bieber is get­ting rinsed a lot at the mo­ment be­cause he’s got a couple of good tracks out, but, to be fair, Noone tries to cater for ev­ery­one’s taste. I’m happy to lis­ten to any­thing, but I do like a bit of R’n’B be­fore a game. Most skilful? Fabio has got a bit of skill, for a full-back. He nut­megs peo­ple quite reg­u­larly in train­ing. He rolls it through your legs when you’re chas­ing him down and he’s made a few peo­ple look silly. Late for train­ing? A few of the boys travel quite a dis­tance so if the traf­fic is bad, they are late quite of­ten. Ken­wyne Jones has had a couple of fines re­cently, and Sammy Ameobi gets in on the dot some­times. We get fined £200 if we’re late, so I al­ways get in early. I’ve never been late. Teacher’s pet? Easy – Lee Peltier. I think he knows it as well. He and the gaffer have quite a good re­la­tion­ship, but the boys give him a bit of stick for it. Worst cook? Craig Noone is aw­ful, but that’s just be­cause he doesn’t cook at all. I don’t really know how he sur­vives. I’m not too bad, any­thing with chicken is fine. First on the dance­floor? Sean Mor­ri­son has funny moves. He runs from side to side, throw­ing his head back and forth. You really have to see it to be­lieve it. His moves were out in full force at the Christ­mas party. Worst tat­too? Our new lad, Tony Watt, has a bizarre one on his leg. It’s like a crowd of peo­ple, and then he’s just in the crowd. I’ve got a sleeve on my arm, but I’ll leave my­self out of this one. Par­tial to a sunbed? One of the young lads, Matty Kennedy, comes in with a bit of a tan some­times. He’s Scot­tish, so I don’t know where he gets it from. It’s definitely not nat­u­ral. Go­ing to make the best man­ager? Lee Peltier or Sean Mor­ri­son, be­cause they’re both good speak­ers. They’re quite loud and that’s what you need to be a man­ager, so I could see them do­ing it.
